america is all about. america is a fair society, and it is not right that vice president bush pays less in taxes than the janitor who helps him. i believe there's fundamental fairness crying out that needs to be achieved in our tax system. i believe that we will be better off if we protect this environment. and contrary to what the president says, i think their record on the environment is inexcusable and often shameful. these laws are not being enforced, have not been enforced, and the public health and the air and the water are paying the price. that's not fair for our future. i think our future requires a president to lead us in an all- out search to advance our education, our learning, and our science and training, because this world is more complex and we're being pressed harder all the time. i believe in opening doors. we won the olympics, in part, because we've had civil rights laws and the laws that prohibit discrimination against women. i have been for those efforts all my life. the president's record is quite different. the question is our future. president kennedy once said i

, and the george bush drunk driving story in 2000. if this is a political october surprise, how does that affect the vote on november 6. we will ask george w. bush's chief of staff, andy card about how the narrative would be different if president bush was in office today. we have been hearing a lot about that some other news outlets today. why there was a potential cover-up on a terror attack on u.s. soil, where is the media on this? governor mitt romney spoke to a foreign-policy topic forum at valley college in california. it shows president obama leading in pennsylvania by more than a point. but that did not stop the governor from blasting the president for calling deadly turmoil around the muslim world, a bump in the road. >> i don't consider 20 or 30,000 people dying just a bump in the road. or a muslim brotherhood president in egypt a bump in the road. i don't consider the killing of our diplomats in libya as a bump in the road, and i sure as heck don't consider iran becoming nuclear, a bump in the road. we need someone who recognizes what is ahead and what is willing to be done as a leade
in the polls to bush. he ended up losing by two or three points. romney's only down three points. romney needs to carry -- >> but he didn't win. here's the other thing. the average going back to 68, the average undecided has been 13.5%. right now, you have a small undecided electorate out there. you've had $72 million spent by the super pacs attacking the president. what is mitt romney going to say that $72 million hasn't said about the president? is he going to sing -- >> please, no singing. >> isn't it the truth that voters discount what is said in ads, because they already think it's spined and they trust a little bit more what the candidates say? >> people hate negative ads. >> there's a reason why they keep doing it, because they work. >> here's the bottom line, though. annual one of five are watching it. the persuadable voters are watching "american idol" or "dancing with the stars." >> they're going to hear the news the next day. >> the opinion makers, the people that they talk to around the coffee the day after, you folks who talk about it on television, you're going to tell them who w

the federal government with their boots on our neck. when george bush was president, we lost 700,000 jobs per month. all these programs were in place at the time. the only addition is the health care act, which has not been fully implemented. i think that you have a selective memory of where we are in this country and how we got to where we currently are. >> i must say, mr. sadler may well be the only person, the only small business owner, former small-business owner in the state who does not think the regulatory and tax burden under this administration has make -- made life harder to create jobs. i will tell you, crisscrossing the state, it does not matter, east texas, west texas, austin, dallas, houston, small-business owners say their life has become much harder with the regulatory uncertainty and burdens. two-thirds of all new jobs come from small-business. >> i am not hearing that from small business. you keep saying that, but i do not hear it. >> in response to the romney video, a obama video service in which he discusses market forces and competition, but also the redistribution of wea

. bush, but very few. >> he can be a little brittle. chris: let's go back to romney's must-do list. as we said, he's prepping to take a knick out of the president's credibility. >> the president tends to, how shall i say it? say things that aren't true. and in attacking his opponents, i've looked at prior debates. chris: at the same time romney has to fill in the gaps for his own proposals. he has to avoid this, when his 1994 debate opponent, ted kennedy, secured him for the same vagueness he's been accused of this year. >> what is the cost of your program? >> i don't have a cost. >> you don't have a cost? >> no, i'm sorry. i don't have the -- >> that's interest. >> i don't have the congressional budget office -- >> what will be the cost in terms of the tax incentives that you provide? what will the impact of that on the budget? >> the impact -- i do not know the specific number. >> so you don't know the cost. >> i think it's a wonderful idea to take it through piece by piece and -- >> that's what you have to do with legislation. that's exactly what you have to do with legislation.

was in a white house with george herbert walker bush. he took that brief every day. george w. bush took it every day. i believe that bill clinton took it every day. this president thinks he's smarter than those guys and doesn't have to engage in the discussion. that's the most important half hour of the day for a president who has to protect the security of the united states. >> george herbert walker bush did not hold any bilateral meetings of the united nations in 1992. >> bill: wait a minute. hang on a second. joe, joe, this is what you're missing. the president of the united states is lying to the families of four dead americans. >> he is not lying. he's not lying. >> bill: if this was a spontaneous attack, they happened to have in their back pocket rocket-propelled grenade, if it wasn't a planned, orchestrated attack? they happened to have a mortar round in their back pocket that they were firing at the embassy? >> sean, sean -- >> bill: wait a minute. why were the -- >> sean, wait for me for a second. when libya fell, when the government collapsed, there were thousands and thousands of rpgs
. the campaign acknowledges that the crisis began before obama took office. it has nothing to say about what bush era republicans have gone wrong. that impress lends kre dense to obama's attempts as running for bush's third term. >> and half of romney's staff is former bushies. the relationship to the george w. bush era is very uncomfortable. there are no new ideas there. the fact that they haven't figured out how to get their arms around the bush legacy given the fact that there is a bear hug around the policies, one thing that i think is going on is, they -- there is a limit to how stupid they want to look. i think some of them want to be able to say the day after the election. i saw this coming. look at what i said in october. and in september. i told you if romney doesn't talk about what he is going to do, then he is in trouble. they are trying to put their markers down. all of these columns are small monthly premiums on the insurance policy. they are getting attacked. they are putting down premiums so they could purchase the insurance. the idea is when there is a battle after words. a lot co
himself. we take up all of this here tonight with the republican strategist who served in the bush white house, and also, negative economic reports having little effect on the market today. lou joins us as does the head of the catholic league, bill donohue on where the obama administration funds anti-christian art, if you can call it art, and the fight with planned parenthood. we begin with the obama administration still trying to put forward a narrative that matches facts. terrorism is a foreign word for this administration whose lack of transparency is further qomp kateed by a complete lack of security in the consulate in an unstable, violent, muslim nation. we have the latest in this live report. katherine? >> well, thank you, lou. associate for the director of national intelligence issued a statement that seemed to give cover to the administration while at the same time acknowledges the benghazi terrorism by those affiliated with al-qaeda. there was information that led us, the intelligence community, to assess the attack began spontaneous following protests earlier that day in cairo
. pulling on the whites bush '88 come all 56 to 61% of whites range. romani could come right in that range and lose, and i think that is down to -- it should precipitate a conversation in the party. this is the last time anyone will try to do this that is entirely on the back. it's unrealistic when 62 or 63, but the existing collision is so dependent on the community that are uneasy with the change that they are just paralyzed in the intellectual understanding the have to reach out to the hispanics and difficulty they are fighting it in degrees note here at the end. the republican platform in addition to everything else it says about immigration, so any straight defeat does state that provides should be barred from all federal higher education money which means under the republican platform every kid in texas couldn't get a pell grant. so, that is sort of what they are grappling with, versus if you talk to karl rove awarded gillespie and the understanding that we have ways to reach out and we should do it but they have a leash and i think after this campaign is going to be if obama wins th
. bush. >> and rubio. jeb bush would be the intellectual leader. but not running himself and maybe try to steer rubio who is not in that camp, a little further in his direction. i can imagine that scenario. >> far be it from me to predict what the republicans are going to do. i thought there is going to pass immigration reform in the mid 2000's. i think jeb bush is positioning himself. he went to tampa and said, we are acting stupid on immigration. he and clint bullock are writing a book on immigration reform. he is positioning himself to be the guy who is conservative, catholic, married to a mexican- american, has a great education track record. he will be well-positioned -- if we will modernize was somebody that we feel safe with, he could be the guy. >> one last word on the millennial, since we had that question. according to the data, it does share is boama's operational us by 18-29-year- old. it is creeping up. he did land a 66-32 in 2008. he is not there yet. pew had hiim at a 30-point margin. when he is -- he may end up with an outsize margin among millennials, but not as big as
that was been wrongly at the seat of george bush in the republican party when it goes back to democratic house important -- but nevertheless i wrote in that book that romney would make a great presidential nominee. i didn't know who the nominee would be. it's not a book about romney. i was proven remarkably impressionable by the 2007 book. the dean of the columbia school of journalism. the new yorkers national political reporter and always the go to guy for national political stories. the profile the in 2005 for the new yorker. it was a very nice piece. he told his liberal democratic leaders, the most influential conservative you ever heard of. okay. [laughter] that's okay, i guess. i don't really speak to the manhattan crowd, the your crowd. how many of you describe to the new yorker? i rest my case. he had read that and remembered that i've written this book about romney. what do you think now? have read the book. no, i haven't. go back and read in and coming back. he did. he called me back in about a week. what do you think of the book? we talked about it. in fact, i made predictions about
, if i talked to the leaders of iran. if i'm nicer to them than george w. bush was nicer to them. i'm embarrassed to be an american and the day i get elected, they' going tbe r . waat naive? >> let's find all the wrong words to use. >> yes, the way that's characterized is naive. it's also true, i asked the president once, what would you do about israel if israel wanted to make alal ke i they believed it was in their national security interest. and he said -- i'm paraphrasing now, he said we take no options off the table. i don't think this is a weak foreign policy president. >> i don't think it is. >> i ree, hea foreign policy president. but it is a jumbled mess. >> and here's part of the issue. a front page story in the "new york times," in arab spring, obama finds -- you go into the body of the story and find t gr thnsbetween mr. obama and the arab states derived from an obama character trait. he's not built many personal relationships with foreign leaders. "he's not good with personal relationships. that's not whatnterests him" said one united ates diom. bu t mid stho relationshi
of blaming bush, of blaming anything you can but still keeping people stagnant without rewarding small businesses -- small businesses create 74% of the jobs in this country. obama wants to tax them. does that make sense to anyone? and we are paying $800 million on interest alone? we cannot sustain this. we need a change. especially you catholics, if you are voting for mr. obama, you may as well be complicity in the abortions taking place, because there are far too many and we need to solve these social and financial issues with a strong person who will defend our country, not make excuses that it is our fault for all of the things going on in the world. host: we will do this for about 25 more minutes, getting your thoughts. on campaign policy, governor romney and president obama sparring yesterday, that is how the headlines played. nicholas burns will be coming to us live from boston to take your calls. the former undersecretary of state for political affairs in the bush administration. the speech that we were referring to comes up at 10:30 a.m. eastern time. this will be at the un gen
thing with bill clinton and younger clinton showed more personality. bush the younger remained personally popular until the recession kicked in. right now in a popularity poll, president obama is ahead of mitt romney by throw three-points according to a new survey. after next week's debate it could change dramatically. there is no question about obama and romney realize they must come across as nice guys that is why they go on entertainment programs. >> we're is very happy you came on this a mrs. obama and brought your date? >> i brought him. he had a few minutes in his schedule. >> i told folks i'm supposed to be eye candy. >> what is your guilty pleasure. >> a donut for me. >> peanut butter sandwiches. >> what does he wear for bed? >> bill: some candidates believe that they shouldn't be dealing with trivia when the economy is awful and there is turmoil in the middle east but they do what they have to do. talking points understand that americans want their leaders to be accessible. they wanted to know that powerful people understand that. that is why the president's campaign h
their lives every day right now and in 2004, in that presidential campaign, we were at war and george w. bush and john kerry fought it out every day about the war. in 2008 we were at war, and barack obama and john mccain fought it out every day in that war. this week when the financial crisis was absolutely on fire, at that debate, they were talking about the wars. this year, president obama does bring it up, he does bring it up at most of his stump speeches, how he explains what he has done and planning on doing talking about the two wars. he doesn't have to say much more because he's speaking to an empty room. the romney campaign has no identifiable position on afghanistan. they have been unwilling and unable to hold up that side of debate and so regardless of what it means for the candidates as a country we are deprived of a national discussion about a war we are in. 70,000 american families having skin in the game right now. we have -- that's part of the reason i'm looking forward to the debates. some ways sort of a post-policy campaign. and you can't do that in a debate, at least unless
was homeland security advisor during the george w. bush administration, as we often point out, she currently serves on the cia's external advisory committee and recently traveled to libya with her employer, mcandrews and forbes. she had actually met with ambassador stevens. what do you make of the pictures you see of what arwa's talking about? >> as i listen to arwa, it just reinforces what we said last week and we've said from the beginning. investigators have to go there, even if you didn't have all the physical evidence there that arwa just described to our viewers, you would want to know from the witness interviews, anderson, you would want to know measurements, you would want to be able to take people through it to really understand what the dynamic was. but then you see things like handprints and blood samples. one of the things, the first thing you would do, i'll give you an example, that is you would take the blood sample off the toilet and the bidet and see whether or not it matched first to the ambassador's. did he fall. there's all sorts of things you would want to know. you know,
forward to 1982. george h.w. bush was on the ropes over bill clinton when casper weinberger was imply indicated in the iran/contra scandal shortly before election day. bad news for bush that he did not need. in 2004 a classic october surprise. osama bin laden released a video on october 29th just four days before election day in a raz orthin race between president bush and john kerry. three years after 9/11 it served as a reminder of the terrorist threat and strategists in both parties believed helped president bush. more recently the term october surprise has come to mean a seismic event in the fall of an election year though most have centered around foreign policy others have been about the economy like in 2008. when the economy imploded, john mccain's advisers say his campaign collapsed along with it and never recovered. historians say in order for an october surprise to have a real 11th hour impact it has to feed into a narrative that already exist, whether it's carter's ineffectiveness or questions about mccain's credentials on the economy. >> it's not so much that suddenly eure
. forget about bush. this is the obama economy. 8.1% unemployment. $6 terrell in new obama debt. 1 in 6 americans currently live in poverty in this country. 46 million americans are in need of food stamps. fewer americans are working today than when the president took office in january of '09. gas prices have soared by over 100% during his tenure. today we learn that the average household income dropped by more than 8% in the less than four years president obama's been in office. what's the president doing about all that? well, he's, of course, campaigning out there all over the country. earlier today he stopped by kent state university in ohio, a place he visited back in 2008. let's take a walk down memory lane and see what he said. >> when bill clinton was president the average family income went up $7500. $7500. since george bush has been president, it's gone down $2,000. think about that. that's a $9500 swing. $9500. that's money out of your pocket. that's money going out of this country because we're borrowing it from china to send to saudi arabia to buy oil. that's what's added $4
. so why isn't he doing better? >> the bush re-elected 2004 is probably the better model there. romney has about half as many offices in ohio as the obama campaign, which has been embedded in the state yet accord tog "the washington post" poll, the the romney campaign is doing a good job keeping up. these volunteers and field staffers for the campaign don't really know what product they're selling because mitt romney hasn't really articulated. a compelling message as to why they should throw out barack obama because the economy in ohio is doing better than it is in other parts of the country. >> it is and the question is, who gets the credit ryan joins me now along with roland martin. roland, that was the kind of, you're not afraid to say what you think. a kick in the you know, at least they're saying they feel the way they feel. >> actually, honesty is always the best policy. it's amazing they are making sarah palin out to look like a you know, profit, if you will, when she said they should go rogue. they're going to have to get more aggressive in this campaign in order to close this
want you to weigh-in. the fact is when george w. bush was seeking re-election in 2004, he went up six weeks, met with a bunch of leaders. when bill clinton was seeking re-election in 1996, six weeks before the election he was at the u.n. general assembly meeting with a whole bunch of world leaders. >> this is kind of a don't rock the boat strategy. i think there's a sense that no good can come of any controversy right now. and that if you have one bilateral meeting and only one bilateral meeting, you're going to get other people angry. if you have a host of bilaterals, there's more of an opportunity to get more people angry. so if you're in the obama campaign and you're looking at the next six weeks, saying why do we want to cause ourselves any problems? and that's exactly what's behind this. >> he's going to go back on the campaign trail of florida and ohio. i'm going to show our viewers our poll of polls, the average number of the most recent polls in these two key battleground states. look at ohio first. likely voters choice for president you see it right there, john, 50% for presi
during the bush administration. i can't really judge. as a general rule, i think it's better that is not be a media critic, but i think it's imperative that we're asked there to ask them tough questions, whether they're democrats or republicans. >> greta: but do you get a sense that -- i mean, do you hear -- is access about the same as it has been always for the media? there's always been a push and pull, but from what you satisfactory ihear isit essenti? >> i can only speak for myself. i've been yelled at by both administrations, but white houses respect tough reporters whreporters who asktough questis they're fair and impartial in their coverage. that's been true in my experience with both bush and obama. >> greta: equal opportunity yelled at. that's good. jake, thank you. >> thank you, greta. >> greta: iranian president mahmoud ahmadinejad who called for israel to be wiped off the met is set to speak at the u.n. why is that speaking even more outrage than usual? because wednesday's yom kippur, the holiest jewish holiday of the year. we spoke with former new york mayor rudy
